Circa smartPlanner Meeting Notes Jnr Set of 2
Good Layout - not good binding
The pads are glued together so it makes it difficult to use the pad. I like being able to move the paper. You can just tear is off one by one but the paper is not loose.

The format is helpful in reminding me not to leave anything out.

Excellent product with a few tweaks
I absolutely love Circa and these specialized papers really make attending meetings and taking notes enjoyable. While paper is my preferred method for taking notes, it leaves a bit to be desired when it comes to searching my notes. To address that I scan all my notes into Evernote, here in lies my product suggestion. First it would be excellent if these pages were loose like other Circa refills and perforated on the edge to remove the cutouts. With the current implementation the "sticky" glue from the top causes the pages to stick together and then when I remove to scan they get tangled up in the scanner. These two little tweaks would make an excellent product amazing!

Useful in managing discussions
I've used many different planning systems, all of which have project components. I've found this to be useful in enabling active note-taking on the back and a summary of important items on the front. Very well thought out and useful.

My favorite by far
I ordered several different types of refills for my notebook but this particular SmartPlanning Meeting Notes has been the most useful. It comes in handy and I use it all the time. The fact that it is separated out with Action Items, Highlights, and room for notes makes it super easy to organize.

I adore these meeting note pages. The system of writing the notes on the back then bringing highlights and action items to the front is brilliant. I may not have known it, but I have been looking for these for years!

Wanted to Like Them...
I like the layout of the fields on these sheets, but they are somewhat flimsy stock and come pre-attached to a pad, so they cannot simply be placed in my Circa Junior notebook before they are detached. I spent quite a while carefully detatching each sheet (with several sheets ripping) to place them in my notebook to make them usable. They should be sold looseleaf, it would make much more sense. Would like to try Rhodia meeting notes and see if they hold up better but the paper is even lighter weight (90 vs. 100 gsm).

Great for meeting notes
The organization of the note paper has proved to be useful for a variety of meetings. I really appreciate the column blocks for citing future actions and highlights. When I go back for reference, I can actually recall my line of thinking and follow up with ease.
